“I first had Chicken Tetrazzini at a Tearoom here in Texas. It was so delicious. When the tearoom closed, I came up with my own version, which was pretty dang close. The tearoom simply served it with crackers and a salad on the side... and delicious mint tea. I serve it to my family with salad and garlic bread. I like to put lots of black pepper on my serving. I hope you enjoy.”
